a. What are you trying to accomplish?
I am trying to build a recyclable shopping bag.
b. How can you re-design this product to make it more sustainable? Use the material choices graph.
Since plastic is toxic, I want to use woven polypropylene instead of plastic as the material to make this bag. Woven polypropylene can be used by another organization to create value because it is made by fabric fibers, it is totally recyclable. Clothes producers can recycle fabric fibers to make new clothes. It is upcycled.
c. What are the sustainable design principles you have used?
I have used exclude toxic & persistent materials and adaptions for circularity.
d. What are the economic and environmental benefits of your new design?
My new design can create wealth and value for clothing producers in manufacturing and reduce wasted plastic in the environment.
e. Which circular business model can you adopt instead of linear?
I can adopt waste to wealth.
f. If you look at the butterfly diagram, to which cycle does your product belong?
From the user-recycle cycle.
